    OK, I just changed ROMs from Bugless beast. UD is really fast! But...I cannot figure out how to access the multiple launcher option. What am I doing wrong?

    home/menu/settings/apps/manage apps/menu/filter/all then go to the launcher that is default right now and clear defaults. Then hit home soft key and you should have all launcher options.

    I dont think you'll get any others because Launcher 2 and Helix2 dont work in v9.8

    Depends on what your trying to do. If you want to get to options of your current launcher just hit the menu button/configure and that should take you to those.

    If you want to install a different launcher goto the repository for UD

    which can be found here Index of /droid/options

    pick 1 and install it.

    Do note that Launcher2 and Helix2 do not work currently with the 9.8 ROM.

    OK, my confusion is that it states that there are four launchers. It also says there are 3D options. I get standard 2.1 home and standard Helix 1. What am I misunderstanding?

    Because like many of the features, they are included in the options repository and not in the zip file.

    The 4 launchers were an option up to the 9.8 release. The 3D launchers don't play with the latest code base of v9.8

    The OP is a carry over from all previous releases so you have to kind of dig through the release comments in the first 2 posts to see the differences.

    If you want the 3d launcher, take a look at Clockworkmod launcher on the app store. I took a gamble (since it only says to install it on non-rooted phones) and installed it on my phone with 9.8 and its working fine.

    It doesn't have the 4 icons that Helix does, but its working.

    The four shortcuts are something I could not do without. That is a must for me in a launcher. I appreciate all of the replies. I am new to UD.

    If you're new to UD and absolutely need Helix2, UD 9.0 is an excellent ROM and will run that launcher with no issues.

    Otherwise, hang tight - hopefully BD will have the Launcher2/Helix2 issues sorted out in UD 10.0. Watch this space.
